Will Ji -Li ever find true happiness?
In the book, many good things happen to Ji- Li, but right after something bad happens. Being that, every time I'm reading the book and Ji- li gets a good news I always predict that something bad is going to happen next. For example, Ji- Li was going to go to her dream school with her best friend and right after she discovers that the rules changed and that she is going to the same school as everyone. Adding, she was going to be a red successor, but her classmates insisted that the red successor should have a good family background. So, someone else replaced her since her grandfather was a landlord. Further, recently, in her new school, she noticed that no one from her old school was with her. Only her best friend, so she was very happy. Also, she was really liking her new teacher because of his beautiful voice and powerful handwriting. However, later she discovered that her father was locked up. In the other hand, even though this happened throughout the book I think that she will soon find true happiness because she is a character that has a lot of perseverance. I think that she will keep working hard in school and try to find true happiness by continuing to be an excellent student.
What happened to Ji-Li's Uncle?
I didn't really understand why he came to Ji- Li's house with a swollen, bruised, and bloody head. I know he was at the party with Ji-Li's father, but I do not know what happened. From what I read, I think that it was the red guards who did that to him because I can't think of anyone else who would do that.
Why did only Ji- Li's father get locked up?
I know that Ji- Li's uncle turned out with a swollen, bruised, and bloody head, but why didn't he get locked up too? I didn't really understand that either, yet I think that he ran away. I have no idea.
I chose this image for my first question because I thought that since it's an overweight person trying to get skinnier, it would show that we should always keep trying. That relates because even if many bad things happen to Ji- Li she keeps trying to find true happiness.
I chose Mario too because he is a character that keeps trying even if he has many obstacles in his way.
